Berlinale will open its Culinary Cinema section with ‘Off-Road’

Berlinale will open its Culinary Cinema section of this year with Off-Road. Mugaritz, feeling a way. Berlinale’s organization has announced that the documentary by La Fura dels Baus will participate in its 66 edition, which will be held from 11 to 21 February in the German capital. Among the dozen films that complete this year’s Kulinarisches Kino, Off-Road has been selected to start the screenings of the culinary section in this international film event.

The screening will take place on February 14th and 15th. After that, Andoni and the team from Mugaritz will offer a dinner for 200 guests in The Gropius Restaurant, a place exclusively destinated to the dinners of Culinary Cinema section.

The director Pep Gatell distils what they consider essential in this world, their most intimate philosophies. The ideas behind the work, the way trouble is overcome, what is suffered and enjoyed, what excellence means to them; to sum up, how Mugaritz is created and destroyed constantly. Risk is constant, that is the idea behind the title, but it’s also proof of the wisdom that comes from the effort and work of many people that have been, are and will be in Mugaritz; a place where the culinary goal has been surpassed by the creative process and its possible variations.
